Description
Type from string

  • Type derived from string
  • In a 1-week type workshop with Dutch type designer Hansje van Halem, I created a typeface system using string as my inspiration. The workshop was named "String Theory". I am in the process of developing a typeface based off of this workshop, which will have 4-5 weights of "string" layering.
